I dont see too much of the old Empire doing any better now do you?

 

When the British left Ghana it had a GDP the same as South Korea - Im sure is a lot higher now isnt it?

 

When the British Empire was at its height people in this country were starving and struggling to make ends meet. Where did all that lolly go I wonder?

Probably not, cos Im not 5 years old.

 

As a leftist I would have thought you would approve that the Empire's wealth allowed the introduction of the basis of the welfare state in the early 1900s.

The main thing I took from this program was that it is mainly the companies employing immigrants at minimum wage that are to blame. They employ skilled immigrants for minimum wage when they should pay more. Skilled English people would expect more money for the training and skills they have acquired whereas immigrants are earning so much more than in their native country.

Also, how can a landlord be allowed to have 19 people living in one house? Isn't that illegal? This is another reason why immigrants can take minimum wage jobs in areas with high rents.

Didn't last for long though did it. The 2 WW bankrupted the nation and we had to rely on Marshall Aid. That only got paid off a few years ago. What with that and over 50 years of interest as well.

Thank goodness for those immigrants called The Americans.

Some landlords aren't aware that their tenants are taking in friends as lodgers.
